VIRTUAL – ACS Hops for Hope 5k
August 30, 2020 @ 11:00am-12:00pm
We are so excited to be able to continue to connect with you all in a safe way while still working towards our goal of saving lives. We are thinking of everyone in our Hops For Hope 5K family and hope you and your loved ones are doing what you can to stay healthy. Based on current guidance and out of abundance of caution, our event leadership and the American Cancer Society have made the decision to take this event online. The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and participants always come first.
Creating meaningful miles for
the American Cancer Society
Our mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. While most people know us for our research, we do so much more. We attack cancer from every angle. We promote healthy lifestyles to help you prevent cancer. We research cancer and its causes to find more answers and better treatments. We fight for lifesaving policy changes. We provide everything from emotional support to the latest cancer information for those who have been touched by cancer.
For the first time in American Cancer Society history, because of the pandemic, our mission to save lives and to celebrate lives in the face of cancer is at risk. Your involvement in the Hops For Hope 5K is more important now than ever. Together we will raise funds and awareness for a cause that impacts so many while you also start or maintain a healthy lifestyle by being physically active whenever possible.
- Cancer hasn’t stopped. So neither have we. As the COVID-19 crisis grows larger every day, cancer patients – many of whom already have compromised immune systems – are more vulnerable than ever. To combat this, we are focusing on the shifting needs of cancer patients and communities facing the COVID-19 pandemic. We need your support to sustain and create vital resources during this difficult time.
- Your donation and participation MATTERS! Not only will your miles count toward our greater goal of supporting a healthy and active community, your contribution to this event will allow us to help fund our important mission during these times. Please share with your friends and families! Do it as a group! And share your photos with the hashtag #HopsForHope5K
